Invisalign Introduces Weekly Aligner Changes

There’s been a new development at Invisalign that means certain patients can receive new aligners every 7 days, instead of fortnightly. This could dramatically reduce the length of treatment time, which is fab for news for Invisalign patients! Read more about what this means for patients below.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign straightens the teeth by using a series of almost invisible, removable aligners that are custom-made specifically for your mouth. The process is extremely discreet, which is why many adults prefer this method to traditional metal braces.

Furthermore, Invisalign offers an excellent alternative to traditional fixed braces for those who may feel self-conscious. They can transform a smile without disrupting your day-to-day life. Great news for those working adults who want teeth alignment treatment without the hassle. Many patients also choose to have invisalign as a step before other treatments such as veneers or crowns.

How Does it Work?

As the name suggests, Invisalign is very different to traditional teeth straightening treatments. The first main difference is that unlike fixed braces, they have no wires or brackets. This means there is no need for any uncomfortable fittings when getting braces. What’s more, the popularity of Invisalign is largely down to the fact they are comfortable, virtually invisible and removable. The removability factor makes them very easy to clean and reposition. This allows the patient to feel cleaner and fresher than they might with metal braces.

Typically the dentist will replace each aligner every two weeks. This means your teeth will move little by little, week by week, into a straight position. Usually this treatment can take up to 6 to 18 months depending on the severity of the problem. With the new development, this could be almost halved!

Invisalign G7

Engineered to improve finishing, Invisalign G7 is the latest innovation from Invisalign. Powered by SmartStage technology, it includes a set of features that should facilitate better control of tooth movements, improving the treatment outcome.

Furthermore, G7 addresses some of the treatment finishing challenges, which are particularly common in teenage patients. The SmartStage technology optimises tooth movements and aligner activation. Delivering better upper lateral control, improved root control, and features that will address the prevention of posterior open bites.

Invisalign at Dental Solutions

The new weekly aligner changes, prescribed at the doctor’s discretion, will simply involve the patient changing aligners every week rather than every two weeks. This means your orthodontist could reduce treatment time by up to 50, giving you your dream smile in half the time! Ask our team at Dental Solutions about halving your treatment time and what the new G7 treatment can offer by contacting us. We provide no obligation consultations for all our patients.

I came to dental solutions with severe anxiety of dentists and Lauren was so helpful, kind and patient with me. For the first time in years I've found a dentist who I feel comfortable with. Thank you

I had a wisdom tooth extracted by Gavin after having toothache due to my tooth breaking. I was nervous as I had not had a tooth removed by injection before. Gavin was reassuring, explained the procedure fully and it was over quickly with no pain. All staff at the practice are caring, friendly and professional and I have been going for many years. I highly recommend Dental Solutions.

Can’t speak highly enough of this practice and in particular Lauren. 2 years ago I walked in and was so nervous I cried just as the sight of the chair. Her and the staff have been so patient and understanding and have worked with me to overcome my phobia. This week I had a filling and was absolutely fine, my family couldn’t believe it. Reception staff are lovely and really accommodating too. So glad I found them, I don’t dread the dentist anymore.

A really Five Star Dental Practice! Upon arrival I was greeted by their most friendly welcoming receptionists. it seems nothing is 'too much trouble' to them. Gavin is similarly very friendly and the surgery is kitted out with the most high-tech modern equipment. On my first visit Gavin examined my teeth and explained my options to me giving me his recommendation for treatment and reasons why. Their Co-ordinator prepared a detailed quote for my treatment and went through it in detail with me, ensuring I understood everything; she had plenty of time for me as a patient. From the outset I had complete confidence in entrusting them with my dental care and the final results are truly amazing. Gavin and Richard could not have been more professional and my treatment was made as painless as possible. Dental Solutions provide a truly outstanding service and I thank them for my new 'long lost' smile and renewed confidence, especially when dining out and talking with people. I can't recommend them too highly.

A first class experience from start to finish. Despite being fearful of visiting the dentist, Gavin put me at ease with his gentle unhurried manner. I was surprised at how relaxed I actually felt undergoing treatment for a crown and the removal/replacement of front teeth veneers. Having felt self conscious about my front teeth for a long time, I decided to have my old veneers replaced. The results were amazing and far exceeded my expectations. What Gavin achieved was nothing short of a work of art, boosting my confidence tenfold. The practice itself is very welcoming, the customer service excellent and the staff are all very friendly and kind. I cannot recommend this dental practise highly enough.

I recently needed some urgent treatment and after trying a couple of dentists in the area, dental solutions were the only dentist that agreed to see me, genuinely nobody else showed any interest in helping me. The receptionist I spoke to initially was super compassionate and understanding and did all she could to get me in asap. I saw Lauren for all of my appointments, and I’ve now had: a composite filling, root canal and emax crown and just yesterday had a wisdom tooth extracted. I don't know what Lauren does but I have had zero pain or discomfort with any treatments during and after. I'm extremely happy with the results of her work. She definitely knows her stuff and filled me with the utmost confidence whilst in the chair! I literally cant find any fault with any of the experiences I have had so far. They go the extra mile and do it with a smile. What more can you ask for?! Definitely my dentist for the foreseeable future! Thank you Lauren and everyone!

Had my initial consultation with Lauren, truly professional and extremely friendly. She explained all my options in detail and following discussions opted for veneers and can't wait to see the end result.
